Florida Senate committee passes guns-at-work bill

with 2 comments

The Florida Senate Judiciary Committee passed a bill that will allow people to keep guns in their cars while at work.  It boils down to a property rights vs gun rights argument, and I don’t really want to weigh in on it here.  Instead, I would like to focus on this unbelievably stupid quote from committee chairman Sen. Alex Villalobos on how this bill will reduce workplace violence:

 “When somebody is murdered, which is already against the law, it’s a tragedy,” said Villalobos. “I’m pretty certain that there are going to be more tragedies but, before there are more tragedies, I believe there will be tragedies avoided.”

Yeah.  Well said, Senator Villalobos.
